Klezmer, the secular Jewish music from Eastern Europe, continues to
weave its magic spell.
This volume offers all the material you need for authentic
performances of new and familiar
pieces. Henner Diederich, a teacher of folk music and arrangement at
the Cologne
Musikhochschule, has gained a reputation with his many publications,
especially in the
klezmer field. Here he presents twelve klezmer arrangements for
variable ensemble:
melody, counter-melody, guitar chords and bass line.

The twelve pieces are arranged for an “open scoring” , i.e. you can
choose the instruments,
add octave doublings, leave out voices or improvise your own ideas
to suit your taste.
They offer a glimpse into the typically bittersweet melody and
harmony of Yiddish music,
which emerged from a mixture of Yid-dish, Slavic, Rumanian and
German stylistic elements
and is currently undergoing a revival in the folk music scene.

“If you ever wanted to try Klezmer, Latin American, or Viennese
coffee-house music,
here is your opportunity.”

(Strings 5/2005)

“I am a grateful to Bärenreiter for producing not only a practical
means of performing
real Klezmer music, but a valuable way in which this unique and
characteristic music
is sure to be preserved.”

(Pan 12/2004)
